Notification schemes

Notification schemes and their usage

Power Admin for Jira allows you to find any notification scheme in your configuration and shows all the projects it is assigned to.

Find notification schemes

  1. On Power Admin's Home page, select Notification Scheme from the drop-down, type a name or ID, and start your search.

  2. On the Search results page, click on the name of a notification scheme. You can filter further the notification schemes by using the Projects filter next to the search field.

  3. Then, the notification scheme’s profile page appears.

Search results

The page with search results shows the following information for each notification scheme:

  • Name and ID of the notification scheme - you can search for a notification scheme by its name or ID.

  • Projects - shows the number of projects where the notification scheme is configured. When you click on the project count lozenge, you can view a list of all these projects.

Profile page

Using the profile page, you can view a list of the projects where the notification scheme is present in the project configuration.

Notification scheme → Project relation

In the configuration, a notification scheme can be associated with a project from the Project settings → Notifications in the Jira UI. Then, this relation is detected and presented to you by Power Admin.

Usage information

The Summary section shows the number of projects associated with the notification scheme.

The Details section of the profile page shows details of the projects to which the notification scheme is assigned. You can then navigate to the profile page of each project.


The following actions are available for notification schemes:

  • Rename - click on the name of a notification scheme to rename it. Rename is a safe activity, which means that the notification scheme's name will be updated in all dependent configuration elements referring to it by name.

  • Configure - redirects you to the notification scheme's configuration page in Jira.

  • Edit - redirects you to the notification scheme's edit page in Jira.

  • Delete - use it to clean your Jira of any unused notification schemes. Power Admin allows you to delete a notification scheme if it’s not assigned to any projects.

  • Copy - redirects you to the notification scheme's copy page in Jira.

  • Export - exports the notification scheme's usage information in a CSV file.
